The Bill Cosby Show
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Tropes used in The Bill Cosby Show include:
- Cold Open: The show has a two or three minute cold open before the main credits.
- Do-It-Yourself Theme Tune / Instrumental Theme Tune: "Hikky-Burr", which had Cosby making various indecipherable vocalizations over a funky instrumental backing by Quincy Jones.
- The Eponymous Show
- Laugh Track: Averted, at Cosby's insistence. In an interview on the Season 1 DVD set, he discusses having to fight Executive Meddling over this.
- Physical Fitness Punishment: As a P.E. teacher, Chet would often inflict this on his students.
- Word Salad Lyrics: The theme song.
